I'll see what I can do. Might not have a copy of the tape until closer to the end of February, but I could probably send you a copy.

As often as I can get booked!
Right now 2-3 shows a month, because all the feds in the general area run on Saturdays. I'd be able to do more if I could find me some Friday or Sunday shows.

How I got started... well, I've watched wrestling since I was a little girl. It was always one of those things, like something you want to do but it's out of your reach. Like how a lot of kids want to be a rock star or a football player, that kind of "dream."
Come about 3 1/2 years ago, one of my friends talked me into actually giving it a shot. At the time, I was fortunate enough to be involved with the Dudley Boys' official website, and both Bubba & Devon also encouraged me and gave me advice. I started researching trainers in my area (at that time, DC) and settled on one that I felt was best. I got a tryout, and was subsequently accepted to Larry Sharpe's Monster Factory.
After 9 months of training, I had my first match down here in Charlotte. After a few more months dividing my time between training in DC & wrestling down here, I moved to Charlotte for good...and I haven't looked back since!
Been doing this for 3 years now, and I never stop training. There's always a new move to learn, or work to do on modifying a move. I've recently come up with a modified Samoan Drop; rather than the "normal" move, I start from a dead stand, and 'throw' my opponent behind me. I call it the "Smurftoss."
(funny thing, I haven't named a single one of my "named" moves. Frog in a Blender, Fatal Error, Smurftoss ... friends have named them all!)
I also got to watch my first student get his first match, and now I get to see him get better every show.

Yeah. I've rambled on, haven't I? See what happens when someone gets me started?

thats pretty hot E. I would like to get into something like that as well. But i think that i will be a little to afraid of getting hurt along the lines. And i hear taht you have to have literaly no fear.

Does wrestlers have the match riged. Like when they are going into a match do they know if they are going to win or lose and what is going ot happen

Make no mistake. Anyone who gets involved in pro wrestling will get hurt. You'll get stitches and concussions and likely break at least one bone, and you will definately pay the price later in life. I already have arthritis in one hip, and have pre-arthritic changes in my neck.
I'm only 27. I'll probably have to have at least 2 joints replaced before I'm 60.
And no, you can't have any fear. A healthy respect for the dangers, yes, but fear? Hell no. If you're scared, you'll hurt yourself or, more likely, someone else real bad. And that's just for a regular old match ... when you've got something like a ladder match, or a streetfight, or anything like that, fear can get you killed.

Going into a match, yes, we know who'll win. We've admitted to that for a long time now.
But generally I have no idea what sort of moves my opponent will do, or hell, even what I'm gonna do!

Yeah, now that they don't have an official independent site, I don't get to talk to them. One day I'll catch up to 'em and thank them for their encouragement.

That's what the bookers are for. They're like your bosses in wrestling. On TV, Vince McMahon and a few others decide; in my fed we've got three guys who work together to kind of guide things. It's up to the wrestlers, usually, to get from point A to point B, especially if they're good at what they do.

Sometimes, yes. I generally don't ask for changes, but some people do.

It's just as tough on them, I'm sure. Take it as you will, but I hit just as hard as the guys do, and can take just as much punishment. It's tough getting in the ring, no matter the gender!

It's not a matter of superiority.
I've already learned what they teach on Tough Enough...and I don't want to work for the WWE. Look at where the female Tough Enough winners are: Nidia, Miss Jackie, Shaneequa (sp?). That's not what I do, and not a direction I'd like to take my career.
I'm a wrestler, not a glorified Playmate...

Cuz I ain't in this to be T&A. No boobjobs, no bikini matches...I didn't break all these bones to be paraded about instead of being treated as a wrestler.

No, I have to have one of those "day job" things to pay the bills. One day I won't have to....one day.
*sighs*

1/24, 1/31, 2/7 are my next 3 shows.
Feb 7 is an annual event for my fed called Brawl Games...it's kind of the equivilent of a WWE PPV, where we'll have special matches and stuff. Main event is gonna be, like every Brawl Games, held in a barbed-wire topped cage!

John updates the votes over at GLORY periodically...he counts them by hand and eliminates duplicate votes so there's no stuffing the ballot box. I hope to see an update sometime this weekend.
